The caravan of Central Americans has been moving through Mexico. Many have reached the border. Some tried to rush the border and were turned away with tear gas. A few have tried to compare this incident to Hitler gassing millions of Jews. They had no problem when the same thing happened on President Obama’s watch in 2013.
I feel sorry for those in the caravan. The blame lies with the organizers. They had to know it wouldn’t work. The cost to feed and care for all those people is tremendous. I suspect a lot of donations have come from those more interested in a photo op than the welfare of the people involved.
Like it or not, we cannot let people rush the border. We don’t know who is in the group. Undoubtedly, some were criminals. I can’t understand how a parent could use their children as a shield. I suspect that was done to get a better story.
There is a lot wrong with our immigration laws and how President Trump is applying them. Using these poor people to get headlines will only increase the political divide, making it even harder to affect change.
